The Star Entry:

El Fabiolo, a three-time Grade 1 winner, is set to headline Sunday’s Grade 2 Bar One Racing Hilly Way Chase at Cork. Having previously showcased his prowess as a leading novice chaser under Willie Mullins, El Fabiolo secured Grade 1 victories at Leopardstown, Cheltenham, and Punchestown, swiftly rising to become one of Ireland’s top-rated chasers.

Mullins’ Pursuit:

Under the guidance of champion trainer Willie Mullins, El Fabiolo aims to continue the trend of formidable two-mile chasers representing Ireland in the Bar One Racing Hilly Way Chase. This event holds a historic significance for Mullins, who seeks his 15th win in the race since 2007. Notable previous winners from Mullins’ Closutton stable, like Energumene, Chacun Pour Soi, Un De Sceaux, and Douvan, have set high standards.

The Competitors:

El Fabiolo is expected to face a maximum of six rivals on Sunday, including Gavin Cromwell’s Aintree Grand National runner-up, Vanillier. Gordon Elliott’s entries, Fil Dor and Riviere D’etel, aim to add to Elliott’s recent successes in various races.
